We booked two rooms as a stopover whilst cycling from Leics to Lymmington and over to the Isle of Wight. 10 Days before we were due to arrive we received a phone call from Michael explaining that the pub was under new management and was actually closed for refurbishment. He had found the booking by accident as the previous owners had not passed the information over. They were quite happy to honour the booking but it would be room only, there was no kitchen etc so no food available. We arrived about 3pm and received a very warm welcome from Michael & Josh. They did everything possible to make our stay as comfortable as possible in a far from perfect situation, down to a complementary drink on arrival and coffee in the morning before departing. We are looking forward to making a return trip just to see the improvements they make to the pub and sample their menu! This time by car!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The White Horse is a quintessential 17th century English coaching inn set on the eastern side of the Cotswolds in the charming village of Duns Tew. With original flagstone floors, beams and real fires. The White Horse has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere making it the perfect place to enjoy a drink or meal with friends. Our south facing terrace is perfect on warm days. Well behaved children and dogs are welcome.The White Horse has greeted travellers for the last three hundred years. Little is known of the early history of this late 17th century hostelry, but there was certainly an Inn here. Inn keepers are recorded here up to the present day, with its own brew-house run by a Maltster, in the early 17th century. The brew-house is now the site of the gents' loo.Towards the end of 1981 The White Horse was remodelled with the addition of a dining room, but it was still a true Inn as there was stabling and fodder for a traveller's horse as well as Bed and Breakfast for the rider. In the last decade of the 17th century the White Horse was again developed to the arrangement seen now, with a new Kitchen, Dining Room and Bar, in a traditional style, and extended bedroom accommodation. ... more less
